An omelet makes for a quick and easy dinner, but it doesn't have to be boring. Gooey mozzarella, vibrant sage, and a generous hit of red pepper make this a standout dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl, stirring gently with a whisk.

Step 2

Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of egg mixture to pan, and spread evenly in pan. Cook the egg mixture until edges begin to set (about 1 minute). Slide front edge of spatula between edge of omelet and pan. Gently lift edge of omelet, tilting pan to allow some uncooked egg mixture to come in contact with pan. Repeat procedure on opposite edge of omelet. Continue cooking until center is just set (about 2 minutes). Sprinkle half of cheese evenly over half of omelet. Loosen omelet with a spatula, and fold in half. Carefully slide omelet onto a plate. Repeat the procedure with remaining oil, egg mixture, and cheese. Garnish with sage leaves, if desired. Serve immediately.

This was very mild flavored and good. The ingredients are simple, and it makes a delicious quick omelet that is a step up from the usual.

We loved this. The pepper flakes and sage gave it fantastic flavor (maybe others used old spices and herbs(?), I don't know). My husband, who likes things kicked up a bit, thought it had lots of zing. You can read my full review here:

I had high hopes for this one, since I love sage! Unfortunately, even with the pepper flakes, this omelet was rather bland. Not much food for 7 pts, either. Oh, well. On to the next! :D

We aren't huge fans of sage, so I used fresh basil and cheddar cheese.  Easy, basic omelet that the family loves.  Will make again.
